My son is almost 4 months old and i am getting ready to give him some rice cereal for the first time. My question is, what will happen to his poop? He will only be getting cereal once a day and it will not replace a nursing. I was wondering if his BM's will stay the same (like mustard) or if they will be more formed. My daughter was not br___tfed so im just curious. Thanks

you will notice a change in the consistency and smell. so long sweet smelling poo, hello sticky baby!

it should still be pretty soft though, just not seedy looking. You may even notice that the amount of bowel movements will change too.

When I started my dd on rice cereal.....her poop stayed the same -- mustardy and sweet.....but it was definitely thicker. And, there was more of it LOL

I know my dd's poo is really smelly now too, and when she toots man oh man, I think what did I give this kid? BF poo never really smelled, now it's all think and stinky. I always am like ohh stinky, stinky when she toots, it is just smelly, oh and she holds it up for about 2 days, gross.

Yeah, it wont be the same . You will have a stinkier smell and the consistancy will be thincker. The color should be a darker orange to light brown.

I have no idea but I can't believe he's already 4 months old! Wow, time really flies. I remember when you were begging to have him! HA!!!!

I know i know, i cant believe that hes 4 months already too. I wish my pregnancy flew by like this!! HE poops about once every 7 days right now, im not looking forward to how often he WONT poop with solids. I gave him a few bites of cereal with apples last night, he didnt seem too interested.

sometimes it takes a while for them to learn the art of swallowing. You can always try again. Hey hannahbaby can yu email me...lisa.schumann at gmail.com
